    :(:(:(i've got an 08 Ultra that I bought brand new with 16000 miles. When I am slowing down or doing low speed's in a parking lot, the rear brake squeek's and makes a (EDIT) noise. Any idea's on how to alleviate this obnoxious noise?:s

    Your pads are likely glazed.remove and check them.If they arent worn out sand them and the rotor with a fine emory cloth and re-assemble the squeal shoud be gone. If you have to replace them make sure you do a proper break in or the squeal will come back right away.

    Or try some sil glide or synthetic brake grease on the backing plates works great on auto and truck brakes too

    You can also try the metal stick on applications that they sell in any auto parts store too.
